Bhairavnath Temple is a revered Hindu temple located in the holy town of Kedarnath in Uttarakhand, India. The temple is dedicated to Lord Bhairav, an incarnation of Lord Shiva, who is believed to be the guardian deity of the Kedarnath temple. The Bhairavnath Temple is situated about half a kilometer from the Kedarnath temple and is a popular pilgrimage spot for devotees visiting Kedarnath. The temple is situated at an altitude of 3,400 meters above sea level, amidst the picturesque snow-capped Himalayan mountains.
The temple is a small stone structure with a shikara (tower) and a wooden door. The idol of Lord Bhairav is a small brass statue, which is adorned with flowers and garlands by the devotees. The temple also has a trident (trishul), which is believed to be the weapon of Lord Shiva.
Legend has it that Lord Bhairav was created by Lord Shiva to protect the Kedarnath temple from evil spirits and negative energies. According to the mythology, when the Kedarnath temple is closed during the winter months, the idol of Lord Bhairav is taken to Ukhimath and worshipped there.
